solve by the substitution method.
THE ANSWER SHOULD BE AN ORDERED PAIR. PLEASE HELP ASAP
First you need to replace the x in the original equation with the given variable 48-7y
8(48-7y) + 3y = -40
384 -56y +3y=-40
-56y + 3y = -40 - 384
-53y = -424
Ordered pair (8,-8)
sorry, I typed ordered pair wrong, the ordered pair is (-8, 8)
